If I want to return to the factory IOS and configurations of the AP only, I must issue this command:

service-module wlan-ap0 reset default-config


But which IOS is going to replace the current?

I think that will only reset your configuration so the IOS should be the same as the one running on the device when you issue the command. seems to confirm this.

But if I have a corrupted IOS, how do I reset it do the factory default also? – Jonathan Rioux Apr 25 '12 at 14:26
The "hard" bit is getting the IOS image file. Put the new IOS in the TFTP server's directory, then run this from the AP's command line (not in configure terminal mode): archive download-sw /overwrite /reload tftp://10.20.30.xx/name-of-image-you-downloaded Let it run the update, it will reboot itself. – Jontas Apr 25 '12 at 14:29
Jontas, I cannot run any of these command ("archive" command) from the AP module, it is corrupted. – Jonathan Rioux Apr 25 '12 at 14:32
This is a bit from what I actually knows then ... I think this post might help you though… – Jontas Apr 25 '12 at 14:44

This link helped me out. Creating a bridge from the Host Router to the Integrated AP allowed me to copy files from the host routers flash via TFTP.
